Yes i do. I think the quality of work he does is second to none. I just think some of the changes need a little more work. I would say, I wish he would have found the same anodizer for his chassis as the Losi. The losi doesn't wear out nearly as quick, since it seems much thicker. Again, petty issue.

It was mentioned on the Losi forums that the race roller now comes with an updated servo saver. Do you think they are including the aluminum one now?

Also does it come with an aluminum or steel flywheel? I assume aluminum.

they went back to the 1.0 style, and no the top servo saver isnt included but its only 20$ and that area takes abuse so its worth it. and roller comes with alum flywheel. steel is only needed in blown out tracks imo

Neal at Clockwork Racing recommended the steel flywheel for the JLR mod engine I am getting. He told me I might have traction issues otherwise.

upgraded towers in the losi box are great ...not much breakage ..cant see replacing something that works for a pretty piece of king headz

I just installed the newer losi 12 degree aluminum caster blocks. I must say I like them. Buggy felt great coming out of corners on power.
